Your Supernatural Key to Promotion and Increase

by | Jan 10, 2020 | SpiritLed Living

People often ask me, “What is the key to success?” “What is the key to promotion?” I always tell them, “Wisdom is the principal thing.” When you get wisdom, understanding, revelation and insight into the plans and purposes of God, get ready for breakthrough. Get ready for prosperity. Get ready for abundance. Get ready for promotion.

But you will not get insight and wisdom in a church where all they do is whoop and holler. You need teaching, instruction, insight, revelation and understanding of the wisdom of God that brings the apostolic into play. Part of the apostolic ministry is to establish order and foundation in the body of Christ. This is what Paul was establishing in the first-century church at great peril and risk to his physical body. He suffered much persecution bringing revelation to the people of God concerning God’s ultimate plan for them beyond the plan of salvation. The revelation of Zion, for example, goes beyond just being saved. When you understand who you are in relationship to Zion, everything changes.

There is a key to exaltation, promotion and all the good things God has for us through understanding this biblical mystery of Zion. If you attend a church, you need to make sure it is a Zion church, and you will need to know what you are looking for to recognize those qualifying characteristics. You need to be among a people who know how to tap into the glory of Zion in worship. The first thing to know is that Zion represents the place God has chosen as His dwelling place.

Therefore, Zion churches are the places God has chosen to dwell. If it is not a Zion church, God’s presence doesn’t manifest there. We make a lot of choices in our lives, including what church we go to, based on what we want and not based on what God wants—what He chooses. But as we come into this revelation of Zion, we should understand how important it is to choose what God chooses. If God chooses Zion, we should too.

Zion is more than a physical place. It is now a state of spiritual being. When we live with this understanding, life as we know it goes to a whole new level. If you want to enjoy God’s best, you need to be in the best place, and the best place needs to reside in you. This is a place called Zion (God’s dwelling place).

When it comes to being part of an assembly or church, or making decisions in life altogether, the priority is not your preferences. What matters is God’s choice, and He chooses Zion. So many people make decisions based on certain characteristics they find appealing—qualities that have nothing to do with Zion. But I want to show you how having a Zion heart calls you out of feeding the desire of a heart bound to limitations and restrictions of the world. Sin and carnality limit us. The enemy has fooled man into believing the lie that any good can come from rejecting what God chooses, and that is never the case. We must develop a heart that desires what God desires. God desires Zion (the place where He dwells). {eoa}

I Am ZionAdapted from I Am Zion by John Eckhardt, copyright 2020, published by Charisma House. In this book, Apostle Eckhardt shows you how Zion is not just a place in Israel, but a spiritual reality in you. You can learn how to enter into God’s glory through worship, and expand to new levels of faith that “release blessing, healing, deliverance, promotion and increase.” To order your copy, click on this link.

This week, resolve to embrace the power of God’s glory in your life and the secret to His indwelling presence. Continue to pray for our nation and its allies. Pray for those serving in our armed forces, in law enforcement, and as firefighters and emergency personnel. Remember people suffering loss through natural disasters, terrorism and war. Pray that our leaders would have wisdom and heed godly counsel as they make decisions affecting us and the world. Read: 2 Chronicles 7:14, Psalm 132:13-16, Hebrews 13:5.
